A wide range of modern, innovative and affordable treatment options to help you look your very best.
Severe hay fever is an unpleasant allergic condition that can be a real pain for extreme sufferers. Symptoms include sneezing, sore throats and itchy eyes.
There is no longer any need for you to suffer though as we offer a treatment for severe hay fever with a Kenalog injection.
Each Kenalog injection contains Triamcinolone Acetonide 40mg/1ml as the active ingredient. Triamcinolone acetonide belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids (steroids).
The principal effect of corticosteroids is to reduce the body’s inflammatory & allergic response and they are used very commonly for many serious medical conditions.
As is normal for any treatments administered by us, a thorough risk assessment is undertaken to ensure your suitability for treatment.
For those who are good to go, the relief of the symptoms can be dramatically better than taking oral anti-histamine tablets.
The injections we offer are administered when hay fever symptoms first appear and can give symptom remission for the duration of the season.
The dose required to control severe symptoms is partly related to body weight, and therefore heavier people will require a larger dose to ease their symptoms.
We have found that the therapeutic dose for most effective relief is 1mg per kg of body weight, therefore the standard doses administered are 40mg-80mg per patient per season.
The injection is given in the top of the buttock. It starts to work almost immediately and usually starts to relieve symptoms anywhere from one to forty eight hours after administration.
